Sephora VIB Sale Haul

Hello lovelies! Now that the big rush to get in store or online at Sephora, I thought I would share the items that I picked up during the sale. Before I headed out to the store, I asked my mom and sister if there was anything they wanted me to pick up. My sister didn’t need anything, and my mom I kept trying to rack her brain for stuff since her birthday and Mother’s Day is coming up. My mom picked out a couple of things and I also picked up one thing for her as well. Of course if I was picking up stuff for my mom, I had to get myself a couple of things too.

First lets take a look at the few items I picked up for my mom. My mom first picked out the Milk Makeup Holographic Stick in Supernova.  This choice surprised me. I kindly asked if she knew it was probably going to be a purpley holographic shade on the skin. She said she wanted to try it out and it looked cool and if she doesn’t like it, I can have it. All I can say is, GO MOM! She is far more adventurous with makeup than I am. Next up she chose the Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense in Intense Midnight. It is a deep almost navy blue. Like I said my mom is much more adventurous with makeup than I am. I know a navy blue isn’t exactly out there as far as liner goes. I actually think the deeper or mid toned blues are becoming more of a standard neutral like black or brown liner. My mom will also be receiving the Sephora Pomegranate eye mask. I have used the pomegranate and I think the rose eye mask as well. I love both of these and I think my mom will really like them. I think the Sephora Collection eye masks are great, they work and they are definitely affordable.

I know I am not alone when walking in to a Sephora, and feel overwhelmed. I knew I was for sure going to purchase a foundation. Last summer I got a sample of the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Coverage Foundation. I used it for a wedding that I was in and we took photos outside. I’ll admit I didn’t remove my makeup the night before and it still looked amazing the next morning! So I knew when I had the chance, I was going to pick it up. I got it in the shad Y305, which I think is the tiniest bit too dark for me but it works. The other item that wasn’t from the aisle of doom is the Dior Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in the shade Tell Me Dior. I can say that I didn’t actually purchase this. This item is once again the result of bringing my boyfriend shopping with me. (This is the last time he is coming with me.) Next I picked up the Dr. Brandt pores no more pore refining primer. This primer is all over the YouTube scene. No matter what primer I use my pores show up so I’m hoping this will help make them look a little smaller or smoother. Lastly, is the Boscia MakeUp BreakUp-Cool Cleansing Oil. This is also one of those YouTube made me buy it items. I’m a slave to makeup removing wipes and I know those aren’t the greatest to remove makeup with consistently, so I decided to get the travel size and see how it works. The last item is a 100 point perk. It is the Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45 in light to medium. I had a foil packet sample of this probably about a year ago and I loved what it did for my skin. I’m hoping if this works out again I just might have to pick it up for a quick out the door type product for the summer.

 

That’s all everybody. I hope you enjoyed taking a peak into what I picked during the Sephora Spring VIB Sale. I have given myself permission to shop Sephora only three times a year, during the two sales and during my birthday month. I know with my project pan I am on a no buy, but most of the time when I do shop, I shop on a deal. I hope you all have a wonderful week and I’ll see you in my next post.

Top 10 Sephora VIB Spring Sale Recommendations

Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing a few items that I think are worth picking up during the VIB spring sale. First a little bit of info. VIB Rouge members can start shopping today the 18th until the 24th, VIB members can start shopping on the 19th until the 24th and Beauty Insiders can shop the 20th until the 24th. VIB Rouge and VIB members will be able to get 15% and Beauty Insiders will be able to get 10% off of their purchases.

Generally, I suggest picking up items that may fill the holes in your collection OR picking up a few of those splurge items you wouldn’t normally pick up. I think this is a great time to pick up foundations, concealers, and skin care. This may also be a time where you would pick up eye or face palettes.

In no particular order, my top 10 picks for the VIB Sale:

  1. Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette $42
  2. Beauty Blender $20
  3. Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation $43
  4. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector $38
  5. Anastasia Glow Kit (any of them) $40
  6. NARS Orgasm Blush $30
  7. NARS Laguna Bronzer $40
  8. Bite Beauty Lipsticks (any of their lipsticks, they are fantastic!) $24-26
  9. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick $20
  10. Buxom Full-On Lip Cream $20

That’s everything! I own or have tried out everything on my list. Some of these things are on my wish list and I hope to pick this week, and some may just be re-purchasing. I know I mentioned skin care and concealers before, however I don’t have enough experience with any from Sephora that I can suggest. I have yet to find my perfect concealer shade and am hoping to find one that will work. Would you like to see what I pick up from the sale? In a post? On Instagram as a pic or an InstaStory? Let me know in the comments below. Anyone else shopping the sale? What are you going to pick up? Any recommendations?
